    SUMMARY OF WORKS AND SERVICES UNDERTAKEN:

    • Site entrance
    • 4km of access tracks
    • Crane pads
    • Reinforced concrete foundations for six Repower MM82 2.05MW WTGs
    • Substation building
    • Electrical works including switch gear and all onsite cabling

    Knights Brown was awarded the balance of plant contract to construct the six turbine wind farm in East Riding, Yorkshire. This is one of a series of projects we have completed for International Power.

    All electrical works on the scheme were undertaken with our partner Powersystems UK ltd and included HV and LV communications cabling. A switchgear and metering building of traditional design was constructed to house the electrics.

    The turbines were founded in Burnham Chalk. This is a white high density rock, mainly classified as Type B3 / B4 chalk.

    Sober Hill was subject to an archaeological watching brief. This involved archaeologists watching every stage of our scheme but specifically the stripping of topsoil. It also included hand digging in areas they felt that were showing signs of archaeology. At one point there were 10 archaeologists on one crane pad.

    our sectors

    Sites are always very well presented. First impressions count and if a site looks well organised and clean when you arrive then generally this is applied throughout the management of the projects. Indeed, all five projects I am Cummins PM for, have been managed to a high standard and equally the safety records and standards are very good.

    Site staff were pleased to have had Knights Brown on the team, they were proactive from day one to the end towards potential issues and responsive to a changing site environment for works.
